Daphne du Maurier meets CSI in this exhilarating debut Thornleigh Hall, seat of the Earl of Sussex, dominates its surroundings. Its heir is missing, and the once vigorous family is reduced to a cripple, his whore and his alcoholic second son, but its power endures. Impulsive Harriet Westerman has felt the Hall's menace long before she happens upon a dead man bearing the Thornleigh arms. The grim discovery cries out for justice, and she persuades reclusive anatomist Gabriel Crowther to her cause, much against his better judgement; he knows a dark path lies before those who stray from society's expectations. That same day, Alexander Adams is killed in a London music shop, leaving his young children orphaned. His death will lead back to Sussex, and an explosive secret that has already destroyed one family and threatens many others.

“Really really good historical crime fiction.”

Really really enjoyed this, as like historical fiction, crime stories and a strong female lead character. The plot was perhaps predictable at the end, but the story, writing and chracters are just so good.

“A rather genteel look at early forensic pathology and criminology.”

This has some great characters, namely Gabriel Crowther (a man dedicated to science) and Harriet Westerman (feisty, funny and independent by dint of necessity) among others. Mr Graves, Mr Clode and the Young Lord... More
